Roger Moore Bows Out
Roger Moore had carried the burden of James Bond for over a decade, and survived several attempts to replace him with younger, fresher men. His witty banter and wry sense of humor, though, had saved him. Finally, it was time to bow out, and he did so gracefully with "A View to a Kill," the 1985 entry in the James Bond 007 canon. It wasn't a great film, but it worked and worked well. The theme song was a big hit, and Christopher Walken won rave reviews as the eccentric bad guy.
